Broadcast Studio Coming to OHS

students show they are thankful for new studio

Thanks to fellow OHS alumni, the next Walter Cronkite or Diane Sawyer could be starting their broadcasting career at OHS.

Oakwood Schools Foundation and an alumni-led fundraising effort, along with donations from the Oakwood Fine Arts Boosters, Oakwood Junior High and Senior High PTO and the District, have built a real-world broadcast studio at OHS.

The school’s new, upgraded media facility will be named in honor of William “Bill” Hewitt, OHS Class of 1956. Fellow 1956 classmate Dale Hatfield and his wife Pat were instrumental to the effort, working alongside the Hewitt family.  

Ongoing support for maintenance and upgrades to the studio will ensure a modern, real-world experience for years to come.  To make a contribution today, please visit the Donate page.   

I want to provide students a real-world newsroom experience to best prepare and expose them to a career in journalism.
